There is another Run being prepared by the Developer...
 
 
But there is also this Product, Lantronix UDS-10.

 

 

And the RS-232/Wi-Fi, with or without OLED.

A Module for ADTPro would need to be Written to Access the Serial Port, but treat it like a Ethernet Connection...

This device suffers from similar, but different problems as the WiFi32 Modem does: one protocol is hiding behind another.  There was some interesting discussion a while ago about the former here:

https://groups.googl...l4/IZExrPvqAAAJ

 

This device at least makes slightly more sense than the WiFi32 Modem, but the packets might need tweaking at the server side.  And whether or not the packets arriving at the client side will look sane is anyone's guess.  I downloaded the user manual:

https://s3-ap-northe...User Manual.zip

The English was a little difficult to parse, but I gather that you can set it up to talk to a destination IP address and port.

 

But what this thing does is not what the Uthernet/Uthernet II do: it converts serial to Ethernet.  It doesn't remove the need for an adapter card in the Apple II to either generate serial or Ethernet.  You still need a serial card - PLUS this thing.  It doesn't offer any speed benefits, and nothing will be compatible out of the box with it.
